Launching ELSAH: a smart-patch for continuous monitoring of health and well-being

On the 9th and 10th of January, the consortium comprised of 10 European partners of the ELSAH project met in Brussels for the kickoff meeting.

The ELSAH project aims to develop a flexible and integrated smart patch that would be a wearable sensor system. This system will continuously monitor health and well-being indicators and be fully self-sustained. It will integrate microneedle biosensors with a microchip, a printed battery and printed electronics, thereby enabling independent measurements and secure wireless data transmission to the user’s mobile phone.

During the event, partners presented their future activity and objectives for the project. In this project, Leitat aims to develop new conductive inks for screen-printing onto polymer substrate, develop screen-printed interconnects and antennas and a develop a flexible eco-friendly printed battery.
